Interests

I tend to take on far too many hobbies, but have managed to scale it back to surfing — living by a beach, how can I not? — and mountain-biking. Over the years I've gravitated to a particular ethos with my interests that emphasises enjoyment over performance. I treat surfing & cycling as experiences to be enjoyed, not sports to compete in. I try to forego the latest and greatest technical advances, preferring simple — perhaps old fashioned — tools or equipment. Except for my wetsuit. Don't take away my super warm winter wetsuit! 🤣
